Sep 05, 2015Excellent resource. I'm a big believer in teas as medicine, because holy shit, I used to have the WORST fucking menstrual cramps (one vicodin would barely take the edge off; if I didn't have that, I couldn't stand or sit or even lie down), and drinking 2 cups of green tea every day fixed it. Now I barely get menstrual cramps, except only on the first day, and mild enough that a Tylenol will fix it.
Sep 10, 2011Victoria Zak's book is decent. It includes herbal tea history, remedies, directions on making your own teas, lists of herbs and some ailments said herbs help. Zak lists herbs with cautions as well as parts of plant to use in making tea along with historical facts about many herbs. Recipes and quotes make this book an interesting read, and educational reference to your herbal tea library; however, some of the stuff in the book does seem improvised and self opinion.
Oct 10, 2013Despite the title (and the reference to a tea bush on the back cover), this 220-page book has about 5 pages of information about tea (the camellia sinensis. All of the rest is unsubstantiated medical claims about various and sundry herbs.
Sep 25, 2017This is currently ON HOLD .
Jul 31, 2015I've had this book for years and still learn new things when I reference it. A must have if you're into herbal remedies.
May 28, 2016I'm going to use this book to begin creating my own tea blends. Informative without being overwhelming.Full Review
Mar 18, 2018This is a fine introduction to herbs for healing but would have liked to have seen more detail about creating tea blends.
Jan 29, 2016I learning the history and what herbs are good for what ailments in detail. The only thing i wish it had was what side effects you could get from certain herbs. For instance making tea from slipper elm should benefit me, but doing research beyond this book made me see that the herb could cause my body to not absorb my regular medications. Still a great book if you love tea and want to mix your own for health benefits.
Oct 24, 2014After reading many Agatha Christie novels, I began to have a growing interest in herbology. What better way to learn about herbs than through herbal tea? I was surprised to learn about nature's incredible healing properties. For example, the dandelion is an antidote to poison. No WONDER they grow like weeds everywhere! Such an insightful book. My one complaint is the lack of research to back up general statements about history.
May 08, 2012ancient chinese secret!! boston tea party! lame as heck intro & history. but it's a decent, portable resource & encyclopedia of different herbs used as teas. and it's also a decent intro for a no-nothing like myself. now i'm drinking chamomile and it zonks me out and yerba mate and it hypes me up, and i ordered some black cohosh and elder berries which hopefully will destroy all my constant dull aching pains.
Jan 09, 2013I honestly use this book on a semi-daily basis for blending my own teas; the index of health issues is extremely in-depth ("nicotine withdrawal," "moodiness," "hot flashes"), and the profiles for each herb are conversational and easy to read.
May 31, 2013Amazing, and includes a lot of illness and ailments and the teas to help with those ailments. I use it as a reference guide all the time when I need certain things that do not require a doctors visit (i.e. ways to lessen a migraine, ways to lessen a sore throat, insomina remedies)
Jan 22, 2014This is an excellent book for anyone with an interest in using tea for good health. It has a great reference section so you can find which teas treat specific ailments, or look up more info on a specific tea. A must have for any tea lover!!
Oct 15, 2015If you love tea this is the book to have for sure in your library collection.
Dec 18, 2014Wonderfully informative book. Well researched and a great reference to have for my next ailment.
November 16, 2015Good source of information . I read the book once but l don't understand why am not allowed to read again. I am getting a message that l have finish the book
Jan 10, 2019I liked this book which is full of information, i liked that it included precautions as not all herbal books do - however i didnt like the fact that it included 'chinese' views as i dont believe in chinese ideas of medicine. i used to work in the centre of town in a herbal shop and across the road was a chinese medical centre, the staff ued to come to us and buy alot of things from us, when we said to them why are you buying from us when your in a chinese medical place surely you can get your I liked this book which is full of information, i liked that it included precautions as not all herbal books do - however i didnt like the fact that it included 'chinese' views as i dont believe in chinese ideas of medicine. i used to work in the centre of town in a herbal shop and across the road was a chinese medical centre, the staff ued to come to us and buy alot of things from us, when we said to them why are you buying from us when your in a chinese medical place surely you can get your stuff from there - they all said oh no chinese medicines dont work ! they had no faith in what they were selling, i have used chinese medicines and believe very much in acupuncture but believe that much of the medicine has unecessary stuff in it aswell as damaging your organs while fixing the thing you were taking it for so i dont see why it's included in this book ? ...more
Mar 13, 2019A fantastic addition to a natural remedy medicine cabinet. It’s not much reading about the tea plant itself, but herbs as tisanes if you want to argue semantics. The only thing I would’ve liked to have seen more of was dosing. Zak does touch on dosing for most of the herbs but I’d of liked it to be more specific though I do understand dosing is circumstantial and one should see a professional for a serious issue. Glad I bought!
Dec 02, 2019Meh, ok. Was looking for specific historical info but only got a lot of general stuff. No footnote for the claims about health benefits. I got the same info I glean off marketing packaging.
Aug 02, 2019Plus points for mentioning some herbs that are really useful but not that widely known.
Jun 13, 2018I really liked this book because it is so specific about descriptions. The book not only describes the benefits and parts of the herbs and plants it also tells about possible side affects. Another excellent part of the book are the ways to make tea and tea equipment needed.
Dec 10, 2018Extremely Educational Book
Feb 09, 2019I have been using this book for several years. If you are interested in using tea to heal, this is the book for you.
Jun 18, 2013The author provides good, common sense tips on how to use herbal teas to help alleviate, and potentially cure, common health issues. There are 20 pages of health issues with the herbs to use to combat each issue and 150+ pages dedicated to each specific herb. I am sure the information in this book is available on the internet; however, I love actually having a book that I can pick up to look for exactly the ailment I am experiencing.

Oct 24, 2017at first i was unsure if she knew what she was talking about, as her writing sounds a bit unprofessional (and some parts i flat out disagree with). then, as i really dove into the individual herbs section, i found out that victoria did indeed do her homework, and all the herb descriptions and uses-even their histories from what i can tell-are spot on. i’ll be going back and giving the rest of it another read.
